How Many Units Do I Need for Botox® or Dysport®?
By Enliven Aesthetics. Posted Aug 11, 2021
The age-old question that every aesthetic injector gets from their clients: “How many units should I get?”
It’s only natural to want to know how many units you should get, especially if price is a determining factor for you. While every client is different and each treatment will vary in the number of units needed, we talked to our aesthetic experts to get some answers for you.
Bonnie Wright, RN & advanced injector of Enliven Aesthetics, offers her knowledge based on research and personal experiences with clients. She finds that the average amount of units that people get for Dysport®️ tends to be higher than for Botox®️; however, it is important to remember that Botox®️ is the more expensive option, and is more than twice the price of Dysport (per unit).
Here are the average amount of units that people get in Dysport®️ or Botox®️ for these popular services:
